Econolodge Rochester: Wifi good. Very clean. Staff very nice and very helpful. Hot water excellent. Motel appears to have been recently renovated. Negatives: when I booked, the website said “small room” and they weren’t kidding - the room is too small for any extended stay. There is a lot of street noise in the morning.

The standards were equal to those of lodging in a higher price range. Clean and comfortable. My friend and I stayed just one night for an event so we were in and out pretty fast. Perkins is conveniently located next door..

My daughter and I stayed at the Econo Lodge for 8 days. For medical appointments at the Mayo clinic. The Econo Lodge was clean and quiet. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The shuttle service was excellent. I have them a 10 plus. Excellent place to stay.

The EconoLodge on South Broadway in Rochester gives you your money's worth. The entire place looks very clean. We found the staff not just pleasant but truly helpful. The rooms tend to be small, though the king room we had was roomier and had a comfortable recliner. The queen room was cramped. Still, the rooms have what you need, and...

We have stayed her many times when we go to Rochester to visit family. I have always been impressed with how clean the rooms are. Wouldn't let us have our dog though so we have started staying other places. Very nice.

We stayed here for three nights, The motel staff and grounds are very nice. The only real complaints are the double beds. What happened to the queen beds? Then the "Occupancy Tax" if we are renting a hotel room, Don't you think we will be occupying it? We pay the asking price then on checkout you get HIT with an...

Dear David, We are very sorry you feel the way you do about the occupancy tax, it is a tax that all Hotel's in Rochester are required to charge. Believe me if it wasn't required we would not charge it but we do continue to pride ourselves on our more than reasonable rates for the guest room's. For what we...

Outstanding hotel. I read reviews, that's why we decided to try, and found them outstanding! Will go there again It was so clean, and beds were comfortable. Breakfast was great and loved the 24 hour coffee bar. The Perkins next door was convent to walk to and open 24 hours. The shuttle was convenient to go to Mayo.

I am always leery of EconoLodge, as some I have stayed in are very bad. However, there have been a few that are excellent - and this was one of the excellent EconoLodges.

Honestly, I cannot say ENOUGH about how accommodating the staff at the Econolodge is. Navigating the Mayo Clinic for the first time was a little daunting, but I had read a Trip Advisor post mentioning this hotel.
